The beer pours a darker murky brown with a one inch light tan head sitting on top. There is pretty good head retention.
The aroma is decent. There is a light citrusy note and a much more tame rye note than I would have expected. It has a very simple grain value and it's nice.
The taste is so mellow and I'm actually kind of bummed by that. There is definitely the presence of a barrel here with some vanilla notes. There is a very simple rye presence that is much less edgey than most rye ales I've encountered. It's interesting.
The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and lightly carbonated with a very fine and gentle bubble.
Overall it's a solid beer. I"m not sure how I feel about it quite yet but it's certainly interesting. I'm not positive I would revisit this beer nor would I put it at the top of Boulevards offerings. I do believe however that Boulevard is one of the best midwest breweries available.
